that the neocons hold for us? >> i don't know if it's that stated, but it certainly is underlining a lot of what we're hearing about hagel now. a lot of the media attention has been on some of the past statements involving the jewish lobby as he called it, involving the gay ambassador to luxembourg, but those are sort of side shows. what this comes down to is the future of obama's foreign policy. chuck hagel in many ways represents the clearest break yet by this administration from the george w. bush era foreign policy. keep in mind the president continued a lot of these bush era programs. we haven't really had a substantive comprehensive conversation about what went wrong in iraq. chuck hagel's nomination represents a clean break. i think that's very scary for a lot of these neocons. >> let me go to peter. i have always respected the way your brain works. you think a lot, which is a good thing for a writer to do occasionally is to think. you think and you really change your mind, which is very refreshing. and i think you've wrestled with these issues of the middle east, and i guess the question is
written by anonymous christians somewhere, i don't know, between 90-100 and that jesus himself would have been born sometime around 0, that's a lot of room to begin looking to the bible for ideas to express what you think is religioussy important about jesus and that's why i would look at these -- but i think mary was home in nazareth when she had jesus, i don't think she was in bethlehem. >> well, let's go to the basics, first of all, the year. was it not four years before a.d. started? >> well, a.d. starts as a medieval convention. jesus, if he's born -- this is one of the chronological differences between the gospels. if harrod is alive as he has to be from matthew's birth narrative to work we know that harrod died in minus 4. if there is a tax which happens when corinius is the liggot of syria as luke says, we know that a tax that happened in plus 6. so you have to pick where you want, matthew and luke named different points. >> is there an abundance of evidence forthcoming from archeology and other sources that will settle all of these matters, do you think, upcoming? >> well, it's h
standoff, the gunman and three people lay dead inside the home. the truth is we don't have the time to list all the shootings across this country over the last 24 hours. but we do have time to mention that just two days before the president's inauguration a coalition of gun rights activists are calling for a gun appreciation day. even before the task force has made a single recommendation, this coalition wants to organize against what they say is the president's post-sandy hook assault on gun rights. this is why the silence of those children killed at sandy hook elementary school must continue to speak loudly until action is taken in relation to gun safety and gun violence across this nation. thanks so much for watching. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> the folks that brought you the iraq war. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. the folks who quack for iraq have a knack for bad ideas. they pushed us into war ten years ago, they made their case with lies and half truths and flimflam. we had to get revenge fo
. this is something that don rumsfeld tried and failed to do. it's something that bob gates tried and failed to do in any serious way. and now, given the budget pressures, this is going to be the moment for performance. >> rose: a couple of points, i guess. rumsfeld would argue that we had a big war came along and bob gates would argue that in the end he did cut it somewhat. >> somewhat. but if you look at the total national security budget, charlie, which would be not just the pentagon but also the intelligence agencies, homeland security, it's basically doubled since the 9/11 attacks. >> rose: and weapons systems you don't really need in the judgment of many people other than those people who represent the districts where they're located. >> leftovers from the cold war and, remember, the president himself came in supported by chuck hagel on this point with the thought that there was a moment here to really build down on the nuclear force. and so far they have not been able to do that except some modest cuts when they passed the start treaty with russia early in the president's time. >> rose: tal
it was a police officer, they don't argue that a police officer should not be armed. the second one is the actual situation that you get when you have lots and lots of individuals running around trying to play vigilante. >> it is interesting, there were others e-mailing us, saying we were afraid to tell that story, because they point to us as a sign that people being armed is a good idea, kind of to address the theories. you actually say there is more common ground and the thing that is the president could do that the nra would actually give thumbs up to t. what do you see? >> the truth is i'm much less interested in the politics than the policies that can come from it. the president has taken flak for not doing enough on gun control. but there are things like enforcement. 77,000 people have lied on criminal background checks on whether they could legally obtain a gun. they have been identified by the fbi, turned over by the justice department, and not processed. they could say prosecute people on their background checks. there are also the national instant criminal background check mechanism, is
the criticism that the white house is secretive about the drone program. they don't talk about it and almost don't acknowledge it and clear that the president is committed to this and an issue from the left. >> david, as s.e. said, i think the left did not for most or all of president obama's first term really hold him accountable on drones the way maybe you would have expected them to do or tried to with the national security policies under george w. bush. it seem there is's a natural opportunity at least maybe to pursue some of the answers to ask some of questions that weren't asked the last four years in the hearings of john brennan as the cia director. is that something you expect will happen at all? >> i do. >> will there be some aggression of the left there? >> i think there will be. brennan is involved in the program and some of the stories today you are seeing looking and as people start to scour the records. regardless of whether he's confirmed or not, it's part of the discussion. however, i think like i said that obama is committed to john brennan. as his sort of adviser, the president
people believe would be more effective. don't forget, there's a lot of history here and joe biden was the person managing the 1994 crime bill, which included the ban on assault weapons. he remembers what happened to democrats after they got past and lost control of the house. >> where could there be some consensus on this issue? >> again, in talking to administration officials about this, who have been involved in some of these sessions, one source said to me that it would be on the background issue. there seems to be a consensus developing that you can close that gun show loophole, require background checks. and the other area is on these high-capacity magazines. if you could limit those high-capacity magazines, then perhaps that would be another way of going at the assault weapons ban without allowing folks to say, you know what, you're taking away my guns because you wouldn't be taking away their guns. you would be just limiting those high-capacity rounds. >> you don't only need to develop a consensus with the republicans, but amongst the democrats you need a consensus because
- in for treasury secretary or does president obama have a fight on his hand? >> i don't know if you would call him a shoe-in. he is going to be touched up a bit by the republicans but he is going to be confirmed. does obama have a fight object his hands? you bet, but the fight is going to be over chuck hagel for secretary of defense. that is going to be a proxy battle between what you might call the know 0-conservatives, the bush ii folks, mccain, lieberman, lindsey graham, and the others and what hagel stands for, john, is non- interventionist foreign policy. we don't go to war unless vital interests are at stake. we put our own country first. i think this is going to be the battle royal in the coming months. >> eleanor. >> nobody is a shoe-in with the republican party that fails to defeat president obama for reelection but still seems determined to make him a failed president but jacob lew is as close to a shoe-in as there can be. the only complaint you hear is that he hasn't spent enough time on wall street, and for a lot of democrats that's actually a positive attribute. so he will be confirme
in washington who personally don't like chuck hagel. they may actually like him personally but he rubbed some people the wrong way in the course of doing politics in d.c. what do you think is going on here with someone like senator mccain says one thing six years ago and another thing today. people like lindsey graham bring up the word "israel" an awful lot. what's at the core of the opposition? >> i think some of those substantive issues do concern him? . john and joe are right. chuck hagel has distanced himself from the republican party in a real and significant way. he essentially voiced support in 2008 for then senator obama's campaign for the presidency. traveled with him offer seas and really worked to squash concerns raised by mccain at the time and some of the fringe of the republican party barack obama was unfit, unqualified and maybe not even an american. this confirmation hearing will be important. it's obvious even some democrats want to hear answers from senator hagel on a variety of issues. have confidence he will be confirmed unless one of these senators steps forward and says
in events, and the book, itself, is called "blind spot" don't together with roberta, and my colleague, who is here today, paul marshall, published by oxford press and won several literary prizes. it's also included work on a book entitled a table in the presence which was written by lieutenant commander kerry cash which concerns his experiences as a chaplain in combat in iraq. another portion of her work, also within the general area of religion, has focused on the fate of christians around the world, and in particular, their prevails in recent years. this included the award winning "their blood cries out," also co-authoredded with paul marshall, and "eyewitness to a broken world," and cox is a distinguished member of the house of lords, famous as a campaigner for human rights and for christian rights. there will also be out fairly soon another book called "persecuted: the global assault on christians" to be out in early 2013. this brings me tore most recent book, the one we are here to discuss with her. i have many questions to ask her, but before doing so, let me say a few general things
, and if so, what has been the effect on -- [inaudible] >> um, i don't think it's add any significant effect on the -- we're doing well on time. we received 15,000 applications in the last year, 85% were completed in ten working days, and 99.8% within 60 working days in the foreign office. .. and number of questions we want to ask you in relation to these. >> next policy review on this organization would seem disappointed they haven't been involved in the review and also some of the industry her haven't been involved. do you have a particular view on that? with that officials how we do that and as explained to the committee i think in this year in 2012 we have had the protection of that decided including by the way the specific department. >> we have done the things we said we were going to do in the organization. there are new requirements to report from their concerns and i hope they include more information to this. >> they have an objective here in the proposal but we have made >> i would like to start with a couple questions. you keep saying the communities of history -- the so-called c
to say i'm not going to pay my bills unless you stop being stuff? well, then stop buying stuff so you don't have future bills but right now we have to pay the bills that have been incurred. >> shepard: the president said on saturday that he will not compromise over raising the debt ceiling. won't even put that on the table. shannon bream with the news live in washington this afternoon. how you is this strategy work out for republicans, shannon? >> shannon: the president says if they refuse everyone from business owners to average americans will suffer but republicans are calling his bluff saying the debt ceiling gives them leverage that will force democrats to get serious about spending cuts and entitlement reform. here is house republican jim jordan. >> let's do it for a change instead of saying oh, give us more revenue and we promise we will cut spending later. give us more borrowing authority and let us run up the credit card more. we promise we will cut -- this is lucy and charlie brown on the football and the american people are saying we are not going to try to kick it this time. >>
. i'm deborah feyerick in for don lemon. let's get you up to speed. a big announcement expected tomorrow in washington. sources tell cnn that president obama is going to cross party lines and announce former republican senator chuck hagel as his nominee for defense secretary. but hagel has critics on capitol hill even among republicans. the question is his past views on several issues, including israel. >> chuck hagel if confirmed to be secretary of defense would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense toward the state of israel in our nation's history. >> we'll have more in a few moments. >>> help is on the way for people who lost so much during superstorm sandy. president obama signed into law today a $9.7 billion sandy disaster relief package. it was the first legislative action of the new congress. a larger sandy aid package will have to wait. lawmakers will consider $51 billion relief bill on january 15th. some people were outraged after house speaker boehner canceled a vote tuesday on the entire aid package. sandy devastated parts of the northeast more than two month
don't know just yet. it is familiart that there would be a changing of the guards between a first and second term. as it goes in churmz of steven chuit remains to be seen. some names would be byron dorgen, the democrat from north dakota. governor of the state of washington as well as jennifer gran. we know of one likely departure that we should hear about. that is a name not familiar to a lot of americans. she served as a deputy chief of staff to the president. it is likely that she is going to leave. there has been a lot of conversation about the number of women that have surrounded the president in this new cabinet. the last four positions we have seen were all men. nancy's name was not thrown around yet and some people are saying more women's names should have been considered. >> peter alexander, thank you so much and we will be stopping back with you to talk about immigration. >>> with chuck hagel's nomination looking like a tough one powell had this to say on "meet the press" this morning. >> i think he will do a great job as secretary of defense. i think all of these issues
by bringing dr. king's bible to this inauguration. even if you choose not to be ininvolved, at least don't be ungrateful. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton, "hardball" starts right now. >> hi noon on gun control. let's play "hardball." >>> let me start with this, new school shooting in california that's left a 16-year-old in critical condition. the national rifle association meeting with vice president's task force today cried when he called restrictions on lawful gun owners, tax-paying, working hard mirns and even being honest have to do with this country's failure to keep fast-firing, high capacity guns from the hands of the mentally or emotionally disturbed. if we can't do that woult arousing the call to arms the nra. those who want to keep the scariest guns from the scariest people? or those who want to make it easy as possible for the scariest people to get the scariest guns. what side are you on, mr. and mrs. america? we begin with governor dan maloy of connecticut. governor, thank you so much. >> talk about it, what it means to be the governor of a state that saw the newtown ho
and by and large they are the event to own. you don't want to invent the farm. >> and john layfield. sunny and happy in bermuda, final thought. >> it is great in bermuda. we need tourist. i agree with johnathon. >> thank you so much. that's it for the cost of freedom block today. thank you for being here. we'll see you on fox. have a great weekend and stay warm and please don't get sick . th flu has now reached epidemic porportion and practically the entire country is in the red. elderly and children are most vulnerable . the centers for disease control and prevention reports that as of right now. 20 children have died from the flu or complications as a result of the flu. i am uma, this is american's news headquarters live from the nation's capitol. the flu virus is spreading across the nation and with the flu on the rise, so is the demand for the vaccine. new york governor declared a state of emergency. we have the latest on the situation. anna, what can we tell us. >> it is a epidemkick and the dreaded flu season started in december . some places in the country. vaccine shortages, the si
will not negotiate over whether to raise the debt limit. why don't you believe him? >> well, i don't believe him for sort of practical reasons and partly for the history of his negotiating style. the practical reason is we have a couple of things coming up that he is clearly going to negotiate over, one of which is the sequester, the automatic spending cuts that they delayed for two months when they did the fiscal cliff deal. that is going to expire late february and early march. it is hard for them to say we are going to negotiate but don't call it a debt ceiling negotiation. we'll just call it a sequester negotiation. i think that is a difference without a distinction. i think what the president demonstrated in the end of the fiscal cliff negotiation and a couple of previous negotiations is he is a guy who wants a deal even when he is holding all the cards as he was in the fiscal cliff negotiation. he is not a guy who wants to tempt fate. he doesn't like chaos. he wants to get a deal. he wants both sides leaving the table thinking they got something. he wants to prove that washington can work.
, but you realize thatyou don't -- this is your time to pin the regime and colonel gadhafi to the wall. if you don't expresses what you want from this and have a clear end goal, things will not work out well. and we're willing to say that even if we are poised to make a lot of money out of this. this wasn't the view of everyone, of course, but these kinds of hushed sort of warnings resonated very strongly with me. and i think are in some ways explained or increasingly explained by some of the news that we're hearing in retrospect about what actually went on during some period of the gadhafi regime. so, you know, the book, i think there were basically four takeaways, four main points that i try to make, and one of them is very, sort of has been brought into profile by the presidential debate and the whole issue of what happened in benghazi on september 11th which is the, what i call the myth of libya's irrelevance to u.s. policy. and i think over the course of, if you go back to the foundations of the libyan state in 1951, you know, u.s. relations with libya have been, you know, u.s. ha
. most americans agree that these high-magazines, these magazines of 30 shots don't make any sense. no one is juzing them in deer hunting, i can assure you. so let's do those things that we can have a common agreement, that make common sense that most americans agree on. >> let's hear from the vice president. here he is today holding hearings and meeting with women gun owners and the nra and, tonight, with the entertainment industry. this morning, he said he'll have proposals by next tuesday. let's hear what he had to say. joe biden. >> there's a real, very tight window to do this. i committed to him i'd have these recommendations to them by tuesday. it doesn't mean it's the end of the discussion, but the public wants us to act. >> the v.p. also hinted at the consensus he's found in previous meetings. educators and gun safety advocates. here's what he talked about. >> there is a surprising, so far, a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks. not just close the gun, show a loophole but total universal background checks. there's also a good deal o
us that change can come if you don't give up. that is the conviction we must carry now in our hearts. >> this week, we learned that the inaugural prayer will be delivered by medgar evars. these are powerful similar bombs, strong statements about america's struggle towards justice. we should all remember when we see the advancements of african americans or latinos or women or whomever have been shut out and had doors closed. those doors will open because others pay the price, others sacrifice, yes, some even gave their lives. we must never forget that it was not your abilities alone, but it was those that paid a price. so that your abilities would even be considered. that's a potent message the president does by bringing dr. king's bible to this inauguration. even if you choose not to be ininvolved, at least don't be ungrateful. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton, "hardball" starts right now. >> hi noon on gun control. let's play "hardball." >>> let me start with this, new school shooting in california that's left a 16-year-old in critical condition. the national rifle associ
an extraordinary year, thank you for watching. >>> hello, everyone, i'm deborah in for don lemon. let's get you up to speed on the headlines. hillary clinton is returning to work tomorrow morning. it will be his first day back since she was delined by a stomach virus followed by a concussion and blood clot in her brain. she was released wednesday from a new york hospital. according to her schedule clinton will meet with her assistant secretary tomorrow morning. that meeting is her only public event of the day. >>> president obama plans to nominate chuck hagel as the next secretary of defense. reaction is already pouring in, some positive, some not. we'll have much more on the story in a moment. >>> pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected u.s. drone strike killed 17 people today. today's attack follows two suspected u.s. drone strikes last week that killed 15 people, including a taliban commander with ties to the pakistani military. demonstrators protested against drone strikes thursday and burned a u.s. flag. >>> parents in new york are on edge tonight waiting to hear if their children wi
nobody should have a machine gun. guess what, people don't get killed anymore with machine guns. we're not talking about incidences with hand grenades. we can make practical decisions. we can pass practical laws where most people would agree let's get that done. let's get rid of these magazines. no one should be able to buy any guns in america without a background check. it's pretty simple stuff. you know, we do background checks for just about everything. we don't with dough to for everyone purchase of a gun. >> who is coming at you when you make these statements? >> my state is pretty aggressive. but here is a big problem for us. you know, people from connecticut buy guns in our center cities, inner cities, that have been transported here having been purchased at gun shows where there's no background check and very little record keeping in places like florida and virginia and they work their way up 95, as they do, by the way, go right through d.c. and some of them jump off there as well. let's just close this. let's decide that, you know, some people should have guns and some peop
a chance to speak for himself. why all the prejudging, i don't know. >> the senate officially rejected nine cabinet nominations since 1834. the last cabinet nominee rejected by the senate was john tower, nominee for secretary of defense in 1989. >>steve: we also know he was for the iraq war but then was against the iraq war, and then said the surge would never work. then when it worked, he never admitted that it worked. >> that's right. he's been on the intelligence advisory committee of the president and the president feels very close to him. brian. >>brian: all right. thank you very much. meanwhile, let's talk a little bit about this. it's a little rehash of the fiscal cliff. shortly after that was actually passed, our friend steven moore from the "wall street journal" sat down with john boehner, speaker of the house, who was shortly -- after he sat down -- before reelected. john boehner revealed essentially the president's mind-set. john boehner kept talking about, look, mr. president, we've got a spending problem in this country. and the president said we don't have a spending problem.
, it pursues it and in the course of doing so it reacts to incentives and pressure. we don't approve of its method but we understand its goals. iran is a familiar problem one with which we have plenty of experience. during the cold war, we managed decent prosperity in europe and asia containing armed soviet union and china. the principle is clear and we are still guaranteeing decent prosperity in asian with a north korea regime that is armed and on a weekly basis threatens to set villages on fire. it is known for its instability and support for terrorism. in that situation has been going on for over two decades and yet, there is a stable containment situation in which the indian economy has been prospering. it is often argued that iran is different because they the iranian regime is irrational. so much so it is impervious to the logic. it is assumed that iran's aim is to start a nuclear armageddon the minute it gets nuclear weapons. it is mandated to do so. there are plenty of american politicians that believe in the happen church but that does -- rapture. if iranians were driven in their f
you can locate people. you don't talk about a settlement really at the moon, but more and more people that i know that are aware of the economics, aware of history and what this country needs will agree with me that if you go to mars, you go there for permanency. if you go once and come back, go twice and come back i can tell you the senate will find out some other way to spend that money and we will have wasted everything we did. it's a government, conagra's that works on short term objectives to help keep their constituents satisfied by bringing home the bacon to get elected. [inaudible] [laughter] >> from the lead to president kennedy played a role in developing nasa and the space program. where were you when you heard the news and what was your impression of his leadership? >> i was at mit, and i thought there's a very positive statement. after i knew what the mercury program had been set as objectives. in april of 611th, what could we do? may 5th ellen shepherd went up and down. several like richard branson's project. it wasn't a flight. 20 days later, the president said we shoul

is the right step to take, but we also need to take a look at how we got guantÁnamo together. i don't know the bigger fiscal waste in guantÁnamo. as peter mentioned, 166 detainees were at guantÁnamo. almost $850,000 per person per year. maximum security confinement in a federal prison had to be about 30,000 dollars. we are spending 27 or 28 more times to keep people in guantÁnamo bay. if you consider the 166 people, the cia has concluded that we don't have this and they don't present a significant risk and we don't want to keep them. but it is because of their citizenship. you know, they give its consent to kill people, but they are not trustworthy when it comes to detainees. so there are things that are very critical in our view of yemen. i think that guantÁnamo remains part of this information. congress passed a bill that refused human rights violations and president obama sign it. in retaliation, the russians signed a bill that prevents american families from adopting russian children. vladimir putin was quite angry about this bill that was passed regarding guantÁnamo. so we wasted
about understanding the flaws in our criminal justice system in a way that i don't think had ever been, you know, very real to folks. and that was a critically important piece or contribution, i this i, of -- i think, of the cases. ultimately, kind of fast forward, governor rick perry pardoned my clients and exonerated them, but the reality is that that several of my clients left prison suffering from severe depression upon their release and developed very significant, um, issues after having been imprisoned wrongfully for four years. i remember calling and desperately trying to find a drug treatment for four of my clients who were living in their cars without any place, they couldn't get jobs because everyone, despite the exonerations, were still convinced they were guilty. and i remember calling around to the only drug treatment center for indigent folks, for poor folks in west texas and being told that probably i should get them reincarcerated because there in prison they were actually able to get treatment. and the absurdity of that was apparent to me. it was harder to find a treat
this year, but it seems as though it's even conceivable that he could wait out 2013 or no? >> no, i don't think so. i would say he hasn't fallen yet, but we're now into the end game where it's clear he's going to fall and just a question of how long, not just we're predicting, we want him out, but he really is on his way out. i don't think there is any way he will survive 2013, but i'm not convinced there will be a government to replace him by the end of 2013. >> why has he stayed there as long? i was more skeptical that he would fall quickly and the reason was simple. the syrians have a great army, a very strong army, and they have been incredibly brutal in their willingness to use it against the rebels. >> that's part of it. it's a real state. this is not like -- this is a real state but look what happened to the sunnis in iraq. they took their cue from that. they know it's not going to be pretty, the aftermath, plus they had external support. the russians and the chinese diplomatically and the iranians militarily. with military and economic support, oil support. you add all this up a
the reason why al-qaeda was able to locate was because of the taliban control. i don't think there's any doubt that the taliban are a significant force remaining. and al-qaeda has proven to be remarkably capable of regenerating itself with new leadership quite often. so you see a region and with enormous difficulties not to mention the threat of iran being, continuing on the path towards the acquisition of nuclear weapons. let me ask you about the president's choices for his cabinet. correct me if i'm wrong but i can't remember a time when the opposing party has opposed every single person that the president nominates for his cabinet. it's usually been the rule if the president's going to be in charge of the government, we have to give him the people he wants to run it. but republicans seem to be against every single person that he has nominated this time around, at least so far. >> varying degrees. >> schieffer: except for john carry, if the sources are right is his second choice for that most because he did want decisions like lindsay graham and let the up session to her. can you be f
forecast, 1.35. we don't see the -- lasting in euro/dollar. more on sterling, more on the yen. i think we're moving away from the fixation about euro/dollar. and it seems strange that everything is saying that the ecb or european politicians aren't able to do anything. and so i think we'll have to watch europe very carefully. but i think the break-up risk is coming out of the market. >> yeah. it appears to be the case. and we have something to watch today in spain, as well. it's the first bond auction of the year for the al beeran company. the treasury is slashing the debt market up to 5 billion euros since 2013. lloyd's expects a positive results with the first take up. it will be the first issue to feature a collective action clause, designed to make it easier for the government to restructure debt in the case of future crisis. and president obama is expected to make the final touches to his second term economic team today. cnbc's john harwood has more on the changes coming to the u.s. treasury department. >> president obama has already filled out the members of his national security te
the president, please don't send jack lew. during the franl jill debt ceiling negotiations of 2011. it was unbelievable, boehner said. at one point i told the president, keep him out of here. i don't need somebody who just knows how to say no. with the lew pick, all of the president's top four cabinet posts state, defendants, cia, and treasury will be white men. at every briefing this week, reporters have pepper pressed jay carney about what some have dubbed obama's white guy problem. >> this is a couple of appointments. i think it would be useful to wait and make judgments about this issue after the president has made the totality of the appointments that he will make in transition to a second term. >> reporter: of obama's 16 cabinet positions, only two are women. kathleen sebelius and homeland security, janet napolitano. the labor and commerce are open and more will likely become so. it's an usual that can catch fire as we saw during the presidential campaign. >> i went to a number of women's groups and said can can you help us find folks and they brought us binders full of women
has been around. he understands the system. will his nomination play? we don't know until it's up and vetted and debated. >> okay. am i hearing a yes vote forever chuck hagel? >> i am saying, let's wait and see. >> okay. let's shift gears here. you are one of eight senators to vote against the fiscal cliff deal. now we are preparing for the debt ceiling. do you expect the same contentiousness and loggerheads? >> i think it will be contentious. it should be. we continue to borrow and spend. we don't cut. we are headed down the road to financial destruction, as everybody knows. we do need to pay our debts, but we don't need to keep incurring that debt. that's the argument we should make. we have to come to financial sanity and we are not there yet. i believe at theep of the day, if the president will get involved -- if he will get involved, we could do some good things, but we have to cut spending, we have some type of a grand bargain? i don't know. but we are in better shape than we were on the tax stuff. >> you said you would like to see the president get involved. let's listen to
says unilateral sanctions don't work and they just isolate the united states. republican critics, though, aren't convinced. >> he is an honorable man. he has had a record of distinguished service but he's profoundly wrong on a number of the most important national security issues that face our country today. >> reporter: key jewish groups being lobbied, that has helped soften the anti-defamation league, who wrote senator hagel would not have been my first choice, but i respect the president's prerogative. >> the white house is reaching out to a number of groups and individuals with regard to this nomination and others. >> reporter: hagel is also likely to face questions about his position on gay rights after his 1998 comments criticizing a u.s. ambassador nominee as, quote, openly aggressively gay. hagel has since apologized but one openly gay senator says she would like to hear more. >> i do want to speak to him particularly about his comments 14 years ago to see if his apology is sincere and sufficient. >> reporter: monday the white house faced protests but not over chuck hagel
health agency for the federal government, makes recommendations, but they don't mandate. host: historic in the washington times. the headline is -- it says, how do we adequately respond? is there a role for the federal government to respond to the number of outbreaks that we are seeing? guest: the federal government is very much involved. the cbc is an extraordinary agency that does tracking, that provides in certain situations where vaccinations, for example with individual that don't have access to vaccination, the n.i.h plays a major role in development of vaccines. if you are asking does the federal government have a role or make a contribution to the tracking, control, and treatment and prevention of influenza? the answer is yes. they invest a considerable amount of resources. host: let's go back to your role in coming up with some sort of concoction of this vaccination. how do you determine that? guest: it is interesting that when you get a seasonal -- every know, very productive. this year looks like it will be severe. when you look back currencies no influenza, you can get a pre
-- you certainly don't want to leave things worse than you found them. and this is, of course, much of the consternation and the stress, i suspect, of people in afghanistan feeling post-2014. what is going to be left behind? will the peace and stability hold? what about the ongoing development projects that are in that country? and that has been true going back to second world war and beyond. so put it into the context of syria. who can make the most meaningful contributions now? and the contribution doesn't have to be military. russia, i would suggest, should be called upon to step up and belly up to the u.n. security council and exert influence. they, i suggest, are the most influential at this time. and have the ability, number one, to stop supporting this regime that is slaughtering its citizens, to stop by its acquiescence standing on the sidelines and letting it happen while the rest of the world wrings its hands and sucks its teeth. >> how do we accomplish that? >> well, pause i think they can -- because i think they can exert influence in the capital of syria. i think they'r
, that was his story. he talked to folks in the room with vice president biden. biden told them, don't worry about the politics. let's go for what makes the most sense. let's not rule anything out what can get through washington and what can't. you went through the list. what was also interesting in the story is the white house, looking for ways to get around the pressure of the nra, and one of the ideas they have is go to places like walmart and other places that sell guns that actually have somewhat of a business interest in the way guns are regulated in that there's a loophole. if you buy guns at private gun shows, you don't have to get a permit for that. that would put a different pressure in the game. you already have folks coming out today, republicans saying a lot of these are nonstarters in their mind. it's going to be tough. the story basically said the white house has not ruled any of these things out. they're looking at strong measures, maybe stronger than anyone thought. >> bringing walmart on board would be a big pr approach to do it too. thank you. >>> coming up, congressman ch
want to say that as much as i enjoy my gun rights i don't totally agree with wayne lapierre. as a matter of fact, i stay out of the n.r.a. because it is more political than protecting my rights, in my opinion. but i do feel that these outleft-handish attacks on -- outland i outlandish attacks on gun owners and my enjoyment they want to get rid of assault rifles. i have to say a bolt action and se rifle are two different things. when i shoot i enjoy shooting with a semiauto so my shoulder doesn't get broke. i'm not a hunter but i do enjoy shooting. i enjoy protecting myself and having the right to but that is my responsibility. host: how do you strike the balance? clearly you are right in the second amendment rights of the constitution. caller: i was just about to get that if i own a gun i can disarm it. that was the mother's gupn that her mother killed her with. i don't put mine in a case and if i did i would be smart enough to disable it if someone couldn't use it. it is personal responsibility but i don't see the n.r.a. going after that. it is strictly that i can own my gu
're going to stop you. >> they stop about 90% of the people coming in. >> i don't mind the police being here, but not the harassment. >> new york police are not allowed to routinely stop pedestrians outside private residential buildings in the bronx. all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. at least five people have been killed in u.s. drone strike in pakistan earlier today. the strike hit a home in north waziristan. it was at least the seventh u.s. drone strike in less than two weeks. the attack comes as the cia nominee john brennan continues to come under scrutiny for his role in the obama administration's drone warfare overseas. in his remarks at the time, brennan had said there was not a single collateral death in the previous year of drone attacks. his letter qualified his remarks by saying he had no information to the at the time. it has been revealed the u.s. a massacre at the time convict pakistani concerns directly to the highest levels of the obama white house. the concern centered around a march 2011 str
